Please note: Hours and performance schedule is subject to change based on seasonal operations and special events. The front gate closes one hour before the park closure hours posted. Check back on this website for the latest information.
Handicap Accessibility: Old Tucson is handicapped accessible throughout most of the park. Many guests come in wheelchairs, and we have a limited number of wheelchairs available for use on a first-come, first-served basis at no charge. The streets are dirt, with areas of soft sand for the stunt show, but most is hard-packed. We urge people in wheelchairs to have someone accompany them to help with some of the longer distances between attractions.

A comment from a recent visitor to Mescal:
“Our guide was absolutely wonderful. He knew so much about a wide range of very old, semi-old, and newer Westerns. We were so delighted – it is hard to find the words! We had a wonderful time. … I hope you tell him how much we enjoyed the tour, every minute of it and hopefully we will get a chance to return.”
